| Very enjoyable for what it is.
First, I agree with the review by Art-22 in all respects. In addition, this is exactly what I prefer in an early Talkie, that is lots of talking. This film, and so many of its contemporaries, is essentially a stage play enacted for the cameras. As such it is a valuable record of Broadway at that time. Absent a time machine, this is our only way to experience something very wonderful, that is the American stage in the 1920s and 1930s. And let us give credit to Miss Lee and Mr. Nagel, both of whom were medium sized stars of the Silent Cinema. Here they are making the transition to a whole new world with bravery and sheer talent. This is not one of those films where the camera was nailed to the floor. Some actual camera movement and notice that some of the shots show a simulated ceiling above the set. Radio Pictures put some money into this production, especially the Art Moderne second apartment. Well worth watching if you like that era, otherwise deathly boring and silly!
